Keynote speaker: LEO BERSANI

"A modern reflection on being must be aware of itself not as an approximation of metaphysical truth; rather, the ontology most congenial to an age of information is one that identifies being as relationality, as the principle of connectedness assumed by all technologies of transmission, as well as by the social imaginary that can refract or violate it." - Leo Bersani and Ulysse Dutoit, "Beauty's Light"

Ameen Rihani's Arab-American Legacy: From Romanticism to Postmodernism. 28 - 29 April 2011. Abstracts due: 30 Sept. 2010

Notre Dame University – Lebanon

To celebrate the centennial of Ameen Rihani's Book of Khalid, the Department of English, Translation and Education at Notre Dame University – Lebanon, invites scholars to the Second International Conference on Lebanese-American Literary Figures, titled "Ameen Rihani's Arab-American Legacy: From Romanticism to Postmodernism."

Rihani's travelogues, correspondence, poetic, and prose works, especially The Book of Khalid, testify to his deep sense of Romanticism and Modernism. His eagerness to launch a cultural, political, economic, social, and spiritual revolution, one which would question Western and Eastern traditional norms and propose new systems of thought, is an expression of his universality.

[UPDATE] Consuming the Past: Library Resources for PGRs - An Interdisciplinary Conference and Training Day

updated: 
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 - 9:13am
full name / name of organization: 
Durham, Newcastle and Northumbria Universities

As researchers we 'consume' texts, reading, interpreting and reusing material found in archives or specialist electronic resources. Libraries are a key tool in this process. Library-based research is no longer restricted to the book, but also encompasses archived materials, electronic databases and local resources. This conference provides an opportunity to explore both the practical and theoretical issues arising from attempts to understand the past: training sessions will investigate the use of archival resources in the arts and humanities whilst panellists will also consider how texts themselves conceptualise and appropriate the past.

Due to globalization, multiculturalism and migration, there has been a change in the outlook of the people. The modern people are rooted in ideas rather than places, in memories as well as in material things. Salman Rushdie is of the opinion that migrants can see the illusionary reality clearly as they have crossed borders. In this context, it would be interesting to examine the effects of globalization and multiculturalism on people from around the world and study its representation in literature. The aim behind this book is to collect and publish papers on migration, identity, hybridity, ethnicity in order to engage in a critical debate regarding these issues as well as to encourage research scholars into critical thinking.

In the present day world characterized by globalization, multiculturalism and migration, we find people who root themselves in ideas rather than places, in memories and material things. This book aims at collecting articles on diasporas around the world. The editors are looking forward to articles dealing with migration, hybridity, postcoloniality, identity, culture, ethnicity, minority studies which would not only generate new and critical discussions but also would be of help to research scholars.
